Josh here... someone recently asked me why I chose to pursue music over a “normal 9-5” career. The truth is, I’ve never paid my bills with music and always had to work in addition to making music to support my family. I know... I’m not supposed to tell you that. I’m supposed to promote the illusion that we are international rockstars and sleep on piles of money. I technically could sleep on a pile of money, but it would be made entirely of pennies and we would have to skip a few meals... I’m getting off track. My point is, I don’t feel like I ever chose music. I believe I need to make music it’s cheesy but, I honestly believe it’s part who I am. I also, know what a difference music has made in my life. I can’t imagine a world without it. There are countless reasons to love music. It means so many different things to different people. I want to know, what does music mean to you?
We are thankful for so much! We’re thankful for our families, our friends, the greatest fans on earth. We are also thankful that we serve a God who knows us inside and out and wants us to bring 100% of who we are to Him. We all want to share the perfect pictures of the feast on the table and smiling faces gathered around it. But what about the sink full of dirty dishes? What about the screaming matches around the table or the kids running through the house and making a giant mess? What about the maxed out credit cards? How about the failed marriages, broken families and addictions? He wants all of that. He came for the sick, not the healthy. #ashesremain #allofme #letthelightin
As touring musicians, in ear monitors are indispensable tools of the trade. They not only allow us hear what we’re doing, but also protect our hearing. We use custom molded IEMs from @alclairaudio to get they job done. We want to know, what is your trade and what are the essential things you use to get the job done? #ashesremain #letthelightin #alclairaudio #loveyourears #getthejobdone
Nearly every friend I’ve made on the road swears by @tyleramps. I get it now. I recently got to spend some time with the founder and learned, it’s more than a great product. It’s a team. They honestly care about the amps they make but more importantly, the artists that play them. If you haven’t yet, go check them out! #teamtyler - Josh
Every single day we are given a choice. We can allow our circumstances to rule over us, or we can be the change. We can, “Let the Light in”. Is your marriage failing and your family falling apart? Are you struggling at work? Is your dream dying right before your eyes? Doesn’t it feel like it would be so much easier to just give up and accept your place in this world? Don’t. Just... don’t. I am positive that some of you woke up today feeling: overwhelmed, exhausted, defeated, useless, miserable and hopeless. You’re probably even thinking that this world is better off without you. I promise you it’s not. Take 5 minutes and say an honest prayer. Ask God to give you what you need to not just press on, but thrive! When you’re done with that, call someone close to you and have an honest conversation. Ask for help. Jesus sent the Disciples out in twos. First responders always use back up. Soldiers work in teams. We need God and each other! #ashesremain #letthelightin
